Norfolk Island Pine Vase
Norfolk Island Pine is not actually a member of the pine family. As it’s name implies though, it is native to Norfolk Island off the coast of Australia. Where the branches grow, it produces a reddish-brown hue, which gives an appearance of an inlaid contrasting wood. This piece is 5” at the widest, and 7&1/2” tall. I finished it (on the outside) with several coats of a water based polyurethane - Endurovar by General Finishes - then sanded and buffed it to a very high gloss.
